Wow, we have a big month! The taint on Great October that is yet another Amnesia cash-grab can be overlooked thanks to six NEW titles that are scheduled for release! The highly-anticipated Prince Pia♥Carrot’s PSP version will be released this month, in what I suspect to be a budget edition of some kind because of the PC version’s steep price. Another much looked forward to title is Sachi no Tenbin, which is Operetta Due’s second adult otome game title after their immensely successful debut work, Koezaru wa Akai Hana. Penny-pinching players will appreciate its low price, as Operetta factored in affordability. Fans of the anime K may be pleased to know that an otome game featuring its male characters will be released this month, appropriately named Gakuen K -Wonderful School Days-.
QuinRose will be releasing a sequel of Taishou Kitan, named Kotonoha Sakura. Nekketsu Inou Bukatsu-tan Trigger Kiss will be utilising the touch aspect of the PlayStation Vita- namely, the ability to “kiss” the love interests. Frankly, gimmicks like that mean jack to me, but for some, this will undoubtedly be a fun feature to compliment the bright, colourful, action-centric title. Famitsuu has given it a silver rating (to explain, Famitsuu, to the best of my understanding, rarely give otome games coverage, let alone good ratings), so perhaps there’s a lot more here than the surface suggests? Finally, we have Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Aichi-hen & Kyoto-hen~, which is the second game in the Photograph Journey series, featuring Tange Yukari from Aichi-ken and Kujou Shizuki from Kyoto.
